TAFE to University pathways
Brisbane North Institute of TAFE (BNIT) has established links with many prestigious universities enabling graduating diploma and advanced diploma students credit towards their degree qualifications.
This provides a considerable saving to the student in both time and money as well as providing a defined pathway to further tertiary study and career outcomes.
Many students find the progression from school to university much more enjoyable by transitioning through TAFE. The hands-on, practical approach to training and supportive learning environment experienced at BNIT helps students develop their skills and confidence in preparation for university.
Improve your Tertiary Entrance Rank
By completing a diploma program at BNIT a student will enhance their ranking and may become eligible for entry into a degree program. Up to twelve months' credit may be given toward the degree program for the completed diploma study.
Certificate IV in Adult Tertiary Preparation is designed to provide a pathway to tertiary institutions for adult learners who have not completed senior secondary schooling. Subjects offered include language and learning skills, arts/humanities, mathematics, sciences, human movement and computing. This course is available at the Caboolture and Ithaca campuses.
Articulation and credit transfer
Articulation agreements allow you to be credited for your TAFE studies when applying for a university or high education qualification, which may reduce the time taken to complete a degree.
BNIT has numerous courses on offer that provide credit transfer through arrangements with universities across Queensland and another parts of Australia. As most TAFE programs are government subsidised, choosing this option represents a significant cost saving.
For more information please visit the following universities and higher education providers:
- University of Southern Queensland
- The University of Queensland
- CQ University
- Griffith University
Gain a dual award - study a combined diploma and degree program
A student can choose one of the dual awards from the list below and apply through QTAC for this program. Having been accepted into this program, the student will complete the diploma level studies and then continue with bachelor studies. Once again this option will benefit the student with significant savings as well as the added benefit of gaining two qualifications instead of one.
Once accepted into this program the student completes the diploma and moves directly into university studies without having to reapply to QTAC. The Dual Award Programs offered by Brisbane North Institute of TAFE include:
- Diploma of Business/Bachelor of Business (QUT)
- Diploma of Nursing (Enrolled/Division 2 Nursing)/Bachelor of Nursing (QUT)
Brisbane North Institute of TAFE (BNIT) has developed strong links with Queensland's top universities.
Credit transfer arrangements are in place between the Australian College of Applied Psychology (ACAP), Griffith University, Queensland University of Technology (QUT), University of Queensland (UQ), and University of Southern Queensland (USQ) across a broad range of vocational training areas.
